Cowes Week , IOW  29th July to 4th August 2023

There really is no other event quite like Cowes Week. It is simply the longest running and largest annual sailing regatta in the World. It is one of the main events in the British social and sporting calendar.

We can get you straight to the heart of the event from Hamble.
Enjoy a relaxed day charter with champagne on board.
We also offer a service with direct transport to Cowes from Hamble throughout the week to enjoy the entertainment.

The Cowes Torquay Offshore Powerboat Race
Sunday 27th August 2023

The 200-mile offshore race classic has long been recognised as one of powerboating’s toughest challenges, and comparisons have been made with motorsport events such as Le Mans and the Indy 500.

Race viewing points and times are scheduled in advanced so we can be sure to catch the best of the action.


These are just a few of the exciting events taking place in 2023. We will be adding to this list as dates are set for other events are confirmed. We will also include some lesser known events. Such as the Cricket on Bramble Bank!
